Macadamia Nut Cookie PIzza with Fruit: soft and chewy macadamia cookie topped with #PHILADELPHIA #SnackDelights and fresh fruit! YUM!

To me, making a cookie pizza is like making cookie bars. It’s simple, easy and even more stunning than most bar cookies! No need to make individual scoops of cookies and baking batch after batch.

Although, you totally could make individual cookie pizzas, if you have time to spare!

I made this cookie with a macadamia nut cookie dough. It’s soft and chewy with the perfect amount of crunch from macadamia nuts. You can skip the toppings all together and just eat this giant cookie.

But. I HIGHLY suggest going a step further and topping it with PHILADELPHIA White Chocolate Snack Delights. Have you tried this product yet? It’s a soft creamy spread that is also perfect for dipping your fruit. My family is in love with all the flavors we’ve tried. (milk chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate).

PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese has challenged me to enjoy 100 days of afternoon delight, by taking a moment to enjoy something sweet! I take that challenge seriously!

Wanting an easier step to this cookie pizza? Use a tube of pre-made cookie dough. Press, bake and enjoy!

For a festive 4th of July treat, I used blueberries, raspberries and pineapple. Any fresh fruit would taste delicious though!

Delicious Macadamia Nut Cookie topped with fruit and cream cheese

Ingredients

For the Cookie Crust:

  • 3/4 cup butter flavored Crisco
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup dry roasted macadamia nuts, chopped

For the Topping:

  • 8oz PHILADELPHIA White Chocolate Snack Delights
  • fresh fruit (blueberries, raspberries, pineapple)

Instructions

  1. For the cookie dough, beat crisco, vanilla and sugar together until creamy, about 2-3 minutes. Beat in egg. Add flour, salt and baking powder, beat until combined. Fold in chopped nuts.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. I used a 15inch round pizza pan. Press cookie dough into a 12inch circle (about 1/4-1/2inch thick).
  3. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 18-21 minutes. Remove and allow to cool completely.
  4. To garnish, spread white chocolate Snack Delights over cooled cookie. Top with your favorite fresh fruit! ENJOY.

Notes

*If you can't find the white chocolate delights, substitute 8 oz cream cheese with 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 1 tsp vanilla. Blend until creamy and spread over cookie.

Comments & Reviews

  1. Loving the idea of a macadamia crust! And after reading this I have determined that I clearly do not make enough dessert pizzas.

  2. Ohh you macadamia cookie pizza looks so good! I have never seen those kind of Philadelphia Cream Cheeses! I don’t think I could use it in baking because I’d probably eat it with a spoon! 🙂 Beautiful recipe!!

  3. Oh man – I adore macadamias, and I love this whole idea of fruit pizzas. Awesome way to cram fruit into kids and difficult boyfriends.

  4. Oh my goodness, I haven’t seen that product, but it would have been perfect in the dessert pizza I just made – I’m totally using it next time! And I LOVE your macadamia crust!

  5. White chocolate is my favorite, and I love cream cheese. Im obsessed with macadamia nut cookies. I feel like this was made for me. Can’t even WAIT to try out that spread!!

  6. Are you kidding? This is the coolest thing ever, Aimee! I am a NUT (get it, har har) for macadamia cookies and summer desserts with fruit! This looks like a slice of heaven to me. Thanks and have a happy 4th!

  7. This looks to me like a pizza, salad, cookie and cake in one. It’s also more like a fruit pizza but it’s healthier because of the fruits and it’s really attractive too. This would make a great dessert for the Fourth of July since it can be whipped up in a jiffy.

  8. Aimee, this pizza looks incredible! I could eat that cookie all day long, but add that white chocolate spread…YUM!

  9. I’m making this VERY soon!!! PINNING! I love white chocolate macadamia as the base!!
